Weather-hit the A-grade cricket semi-finals but two old rivals will fight out the SDCA two-day title.CHALPAT SONTI March 19, 2014 4:39am
Broadford v Nagambie SDCA A-grade two-day semi-final. Broadford opener Evan Mills faces as Nagambie fielders Nathan Fothergill, Jayden Gleeson, Kyle Winter-Irving and wicketkeeper Luke Nolan lie in wait behind the stumps.
Seldom can one weather event have affected a grade of cricket as the lightning flashes around the region on Saturday afternoon.
The B-grade finals this Saturday could — and should — have had different line-ups had the weather stayed kind just a little longer, one A-grade semi-final at Kilmore was possibly affected, but it is doubtful if the C-grade finalists or the result in the Broadford-Nagambie A-grade game would have been changed.
In the end, it was Broadford bowler Jeremy Bradshaw who decided the game at Harley Hammond Reserve in the space of a few minutes on Saturday afternoon against Nagambie, while defending premiers Kilmore will get a chance to go back-to-back in a local derby this weekend.
Broadford last won the title in 2002-03, when it beat Heathcote, and while it would be the underdog, has beaten Kilmore in both clashes this season, though the two-day fixture had an almost bizarre finish when the Blues didn’t quite time the chase right for just 100 runs to secure an outright.
